a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we know for sure is mitt romney's saying he's going to cut taxes and barack obama says he's going to raise taxes and neither one of these -- >> that's the argument in the messaging out on the campaign trail. but when you look at what this president has done -- >> no, no, no, no -- just stop. >> what? >> just stop. i'm talking about the future. you want to talk about the past. if i say the president's intelle

barack obama is today. >> bill: mr. pelley low goes in your recent polling we remind everybody you pulled out of west virginia north carolina and virginia. romney is going to take those states. you suspended polling there do you believe that tonight. >> it was based on the head-to-head number. barack obama was leading 48% to 40% in those three states. six weeks ago. then 4 will% 44. now it's 48%, 48%. common denominator barack obama is still stuck at 48%. so, if, in virginia, especially or in bell test get up to where it is is in new hampshire and ohio to 49%, we would certainly take another look and jump back. in it's still stuck at 4%. as incumbent as the known quantity, very difficult to get to 50. when you can't seem to grow beyond that. >> still standing to analysis. in ohio, rasmussen today, has romney up by two. >> i can tell you, we pulled ohio last week. and i looked at the two polls that had obama plus 4. i don't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidate
. we cannot let them get a nuclear weapon. >> mrs. vilsack, president obama has approved the use of unmanned drones to fight terrorists around the world -- that concerns some members of your party. are you concerned about that? >> not particularly. i think it is part of a strategy i am talking about -- there are a lot of different things that we need to be able to do. there are people who will be able to decide when it is the best time to use drones or any of the other tools we have to be strategic and nimble and our response. so i do not have any particular problem. >> mr. king, libertarians in your party have a view of drones that is not terribly positive. what is your view? >> i think the utilization of them to take that leadership of al qaeda has been an effective means in that part of the world. it is a case by case basis. i would not say i would remove the authority from the president to protect us. he needs to have that authority as commander in chief. i am not critical of those. >> a kind of war -- a trade war possibly is spoken of as hypothetical with china, with currenc
president obama in the lead, 56 to 46%. here's one of mr. romney's biggest supporters. >> i feel pressure in that way. if we don't win ohio, it's tough to think we'll win the national debate. >> henry, let's talk about the ground game in ohio. who has the advantage? >> it's tough to say at this point. the obama campaign never left after 2008. they like to tell us that. they like to remind us of that. the romney campaign has been on the ground since the primary was over probably in april. they had a lot of catching up to do. they are stressing their door knocking capabilities. they've knocked on over a million doors in ohio. it's tough to say. the obama campaign has a superior ground game. they were heavily involved in a ballot issue a year ago. that was seen as a scrimmage for 2012. and right now we're just waiting to see who's turning out the early vote fast enough. >> but it seems like president obama has the sense there, that's what experts say. we just talked to michael mcdonald. it seems that way. do you think it's the thing that has enough with the wind at its back to carry him? >>
overnight. for more on that, we turn to mr. ron claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. in the news, the superstorm is threatening to alter campaign plans for both president obama and mitt romney, as they come down the final stretch. romney and vice president biden have canceled weekend rallies in virginia. >>> and the businessman who sued facebook founder mark zuckerberg, for half of the company. he's been arrested on fraud charges. authorities say he fabricated and destroyed evidence to support his claims. >>> and the seven-time tour de france winner, lance armstrong, will not be awarded the award -- it was stripped from him. it will not be awarded to any other riders. the governing body will remain blank for all of the years that armstrong had one. the committee also said that armstrong should return his prize money. >>> finally, an unexpected guest at a wendy's in kentucky. a deer came crashing through the door, shattering the glass. the deer ran around the restaurant before leaving through a window. there were no other customers inside at the time. >>> it's time, now, for the w
20 years. host: here is to get on twitter. how do residents in new hampshire regard mr. sununu and his remarks on president obama? guest: governor sununu is a knowledgeable former governor of new hampshire. he was chief of staff for herbert walker bush. he knows national politics and has been doing quite a bit of television on behalf of the republican party. a very smart man, very well respected. certainly, anyone in politics who is on television a lot and is commenting sometimes may or may not say something that they regret. i am not going to judge each one of his remarks, but -- host: has it had an impact on the new hampshire voter? guest: is very well-respected in new hampshire, which is maybe one reason why he has been up front for the republican party. he is among people in new hampshire would tend to listen to. the senator is very popular, and our outgoing governor, the president pass campaign used him in advertising because he is so popular. he has been on the stage with the president. they are using surrogates like that. i think that the president's campaign is very sma

committee and the finance committee. >> moderator: a rebuttal, mr. howell. howell: well, i wish you'd help president obama. this is the very essence of the problem. he's only going to help president romney. ladies and gentlemen, this is what the problem is back there. we've become so isolated. i'm going to work with governor romney if he becomes president or president obama. we have to make sure that we tackle this problem. for 36 years my opponent's been back there, and we haven't had a solution. at ibm if you're in a position and you don't fix something, you're fired, you're terminated, you're done. >> moderator: let's go to our next question. it's from randy parker, ceo of the utah farm bureau. it'll go to mr. howell. mr. parker. >> senator hatch, mr. howell, good to be here. our national debt is clearly a burden on our country and our future financial well being. what do you propose to do to reduce government spending, cut the debt and secure our national security for the future? howell: well, thank you, randy, and i appreciate the farm bureau, and randy was actually one of those that
bill clinton and vice president biden after getting a blast of wind on the tarmac praised obama's presidential decision. >> he got up this morning and called me, said i have to go back, the storm is getting out of hand. i got to handle it. i said, mr. president, that is the right call. >> reporter: romney squeezed in ralliesen avon lake, ohio, and davenport, iowa, before pressing pause on this campaign. >> hopefully your thought and prayers will join with me and people across the country when you think about folks that are in harm's way. we love our fellow americans. wish them well. >> this is the closest election since modern polling began in 1936. with the candidates averaging a 48% to 48%, tie, since september. and in the perfect storm of an election comes this storm, slicing a path through battleground state, north carolina, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. potentially impacting early voting. and who knows where the recovery from the storm will be one week from tomorrow. thus the candidates are trying to project leadership. >> speaking today with the national weather servi
. this is an interesting idea. i don't know exactly how you'd move it forward, but it is interesting to contemplate. >> mr. king, are you planning to sue -- you said you wanted to sue president obama over the change in policy that young people would not be deported. >> he violated the constitution like gov. vilsack, he cannot do that with memorandum, and this was bogging people down. >> where do you stand on that? >> in the process? there are plaintiffs who won't come on until after the election. i will hold the suit up until after the election and we will get the suit filed. >> the answer is -- we wouldn't have this issue if congress had done their job. one branch doesn't work well and another steps in. i think the president took a necessary step. >> we will see a couple of commercials right now, the first from mrs. vilsack's campiagn. >> i am christie vilsack and i approve this message. ♪ >> mr. king, mrs. vilsack has called you an embarassment to iowa. do some of the quotes embarrass you? >> i've said by the time i eliminated the questions and dishonesty, the only thing left was "i'm christie vilsack
because he thinks president obama is the best person of the job. i don't think general powell is prone to make decisions on people based on skin color. i would agree strongly about the comments made by mr. sununu, even though i used to work under him at the white house. i think people base endorsements on who they think is the best person for the job. i am proud that an african-american is president of the united states. i happen to support mitt romney, and i made that decision based on the facts of what i think are the important issues that move me. i'm sorry that governor sununu made a comment like that. >> listening to what you are saying, joe, where is the outrage from your party about this statement? >> i think there are so many statements made in the closing days of the campaign, nobody is paying attention to the comments. the race is very close, and i agree with governor dean, endorsements don't mean a whole lot. except in a case like this. where the race will be razor thin, the margin of victory may be razor thin. any endorsement is certainly helpful to mitt romney in iowa. >>
. and president obama did a half an hour chat with them, but at the end of it he said, boot way that's off the record. they said, come on, mr. president, we'd like to hear what you have to say. that kind of back fired and did later release it. the big story is conventional wisdom to endorse the president, but they've instead endorsed mitt romney. >> clayton: not since 1972, 40 years, unbelievable. here is what they had to say about the decision to pick mitt romney. our discussion repeatedly circled back to the single most important challenge, getting the economy out of the doldrums and more americans and meaningful jobs with promising futures and the federal government on track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner which the country demand. which candidate could force the compromises in congress to achieve the goals. when the question is framed in those terms, mitt romney emerges as the stronger candidate and the sentence stuck out for me, the president's best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short and nothing indicates it would change in a second term. >> st
